A Tree Crew's Island Adventure

The New Canaan tree warden left me a message, "Got guys that can swim with chain saws on their backs?"

There's a park in town with an island and a large oak fell during Irene, and he wanted it cut up and left on the ground so it wasn't so visible.

"I know it's an odd request, don't know what to do."

I told him not to worry, there's not a lot we can't handle.

I put the Kayak on the roof the next Saturday and paddled out with the saws with a throw bag line attached. Leo pulled the boat back and got across, Alex did the same, we took care of the job and back over we went.

I had to itemize the invoice for FEMA reimbursement. We listed the Kayak as a "no charge" item and off it went.

"You guys make my life easy."

All in a day's work... You should have seen the look on the faces of the dog-walkers when we started loading the saws into the boat!
